The 2006 Pinot Noir Laurene (not due to be released until 9/09) is medium/dark ruby colored with an alluring perfume of pain grille, mineral, spice box, cherry, and black raspberry with some blue notes in the background. It has more depth and concentration than the "cuvee classique" with gobs of sweet, ripe fruit, enough structure to evolve for 3-4 years and a 45-second finish. Drink it from 2012 to 2021. <br> </br> Domaine Drouhin remains one of the standards against which other Oregon Pinot Noirs must be measured.

($65) Smooth and focused, this well-mannered, medium-weight wine has fresh, ripe currant and plum flavors, shaded with hints of white pepper and cream as the finish lingers easily. Drink now through 2014.

Fresh raspberry and sandalwood on the nose, with rose and cocoa adding complexity. Pliant red berry and dark cherry flavors boast impressive sweetness and purity, with bitter chocolate gaining strength with air. Finishes with excellent lift and cut, repeating the cherry note.

As purists believe, you can read your newspaper through the medium ruby Domaine Drouhin 'Cuvee Laurene'. This is the essence of pinot noir-seamless like a classic Volnay in its rich and silky character. Broad and generous, it fans out on the palate with bing cherry, cola, orange rind, and notes of sandalwood, finishing with dusty rose petal that lingers on the finish. This is a beauty that unfolds before you, asking for a beautiful meal and someone memorable to share it with.
